    Hey Jack..well regarding the bossum and the sneeze..I think I was trying to explain that the juxtaposed fragment of the haiku will not be a surprise/ an ahHA erukea moment IF the line simply shows [cause and effect] so a blossum which makes one sneeze would not be surprising? I write cause and effect TOO! and Chas usually is the one who catches me it's very easy to forget and do this. What it does show is you are getting so good and the form we are down to 'fine tuning' ;)

    ex: above usually only 1 action[verb] in the 2 line part..sometimes you can use a verb in the fragment but you don't have to it can be a phrase or a statement [August Wind]
